Everyday Social Justice and Citizenship: Perspectives for the 21st Century


Add your own review!

Overview

Social justice is a concept which is widely touted and lauded as desirable, yet its meaning may differ depending on whether its focus is on the underlying values of social justice, the more specific objectives these entail, or the actual practices or policies which aim to achieve social justice. In the current global political context, we need to re-examine what we mean by social justice, and demonstrate that making a difference and contributing to human flourishing is more achievable than this context would suggest. The book aims to increase our sense of being able to enact social justice, by showcasing different ways of contributing to social justice, and making a difference in different settings and different ways. Part 1 introduces a fluid and contextual approach to social justice. Part 2 examines social justice and faith perspectives, such as Christianity, Judaism, Islam and community organisations. Part 3 illustrates perspectives on children, the family, sport and local government. Part IV provides perspectives of social justice in education. Considering concepts of citizenship and social justice from a variety of contemporary perspectives, Everyday Social Justice and Citizenship should be considered essential reading for academics and students from a range of social scientific disciplines with an interest in social justice, as well as those working in education, community work, youth work and chaplaincy.

Reviews

'This monograph is particularly timely in the current environment in which the concept of citizenship is the subject of increasing political and ideological conflict and contention. Its well-written essays provide valuable insights about the common and diverse interpretations of social justice expressed by various cultures and faiths. They also make important contributions to our understanding of the implications of social justice for policy and practice by demonstrating how the concept could be applied to such varied fields as education, sports, and children and family services.' - Michael Reisch, Daniel Thursz Distinguished Professor of Social Justice, University of Maryland
